depends on the woman

Some cramping is normal most of the time due to the uterus stretching. If the cramping is accompanied by bleeding go to the emergency room or see a doctor immediately. Especially if you know for sure that you are pregnant.

You can get ligament stretching during pregnancy that feels quite like menstrual cramping.

yes it's normal to have mild cramps during 12 weeks of pregnancy its called braxton hicks contraction.

Yes, but usually only at the time you would have had your first period after conception. After that it's normal to have pregnancy cramps but they're not normally menstrual cramps. If you are asking whether you can get pregnant during your period the answer is, it's very unlikely.

Not necissarily. Menstrual cramps are common, with around 80% of women experiencing menstrual cramps at some point in their lives, however menstrual cramps are not a normal part of healthy menstruation so not everyone gets them (and if you do there are ways to prevent them). Menstrual cramps can be more common in your pre-teens and teens due to hormonal imbalance, so you may get menstrual cramps during your first period...but you may not.
